    Minimising the risk of and reducing the impact of fire and explosion hazard in underground coal mining.

    MINFIREX research work focuses on minimising the risk of the development of fires and explosions and minimising the consequences of fires and explosions if they occur. In particular the main objectives of the project work are:

    • Developing strategies to prevent fires and explosions
    • Developing innovative detection measures for fires and other dangerous atmospheres
    • Developing fire fighting methods especially for hidden fires Developing an innovative active extinguishing system ensuring effective protection against propagation of fires or explosions
